New Website

How much do you know about the Community Foundation of Central Wisconsin? Whether you are new to the Foundation or a steady supporter, we cordially invite you to check out our new and improved website: www.cfcwi.org! The Community Foundation in partnership with members of the Web and Digital Media Development class at UWSP, created a much more fluid and user-friendly website for everyone!

In 2009, the original website was created by Marcus Hammitt, the Community Foundation’s Technology and Media Service Staff using an older platform of web design. As technology progressed throughout the years, the Community Foundation saw a need to update its website with a newer web design. The idea for the partnership, in the Fall of 2015, with the Web and Digital Media Development class at UWSP couldn’t have come at a better time!

The Foundation and the Web and Digital Media Development group, led by Tim Kraus, began the website revamp process and new Foundation marketing video, with the help of the following students: Leah Lueck, Paige Haberkorn, and Janelle Huehnerfuss. Both projects were completed during the 2015 fall semester. The website and video went live January 1, 2016. While reflecting about the process, Leah Lueck commented the following, “By working for a business (such as the Community Foundation) I gained more experience working with clients, as well as knowing what it feels like to be under pressure to reach a deadline.” Both parties were winners in the end. The students gained the professional experience and the Foundation is able to communicate its mission more effectively!

We invite you to check out the new Community Foundation website which has a fresh, sleek new look and is mobile-friendly! Whether you are an interested as a scholarship or grant applicant, donor, volunteer, or community member we are confident you will enjoy the ease our new website will deliver.
